anyone paddled the waiari at high flow?

Paddled it multiple times without rain anyone know what its like after a decent pour down?

don't go there man... next time you paddle it have a look at the area a bit more carefully. it will flash, new logs every time it rains. the walls will become undercut and holes/whirlpools will pop up all over the place.

Have to be careful of wood and slips coming down if paddling in high flow. I live near the river and have paddled it a fair few times. After every flood we take it slow as there is always new wood. You also need to consider whether you would still be able to scout/walk the waterfall as there are very few eddies above and the get out spot isnt very easy at normal flow.

I'd be REAL careful in there after this high wind has been through. Hey you could do a fly over scout. Or wait for Dan to do a run.
